Denmark Is Big Winner of Tonight’s International Mediation Ruling

Carl Bildt tweets some good news:

I dunno. I just completed some extensive research on this thorny issue, and here’s my conclusion:

Sorry, Canada, this rock belongs to Denmark. Please remit “loser pays” fee of $100,000 (US dollars, mind you) to Drum Mediations LLC, Irvine, California. Failure to recognize this decision will brand you a lawless state in the court of public opinion and may even precipitate a nasty tweet from President Trump. You have been warned.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
